Catedral Nueva is Spanish for "New Cathedral". It seems strange to call it that because it is several hundred years old. The day before we left Salamanca I was walking past the Catedral Nueva with some other students when we noticed that there were a lot of peple gathering there. When we asked what whas going on we were told that there was going to be a procession and a special Mass with dancing. A group of people proceeded down the street dressed in the tradional clothing of Salamanca. The women in the procession were escorted by the men. The women were wearing black lace to cover their hair. The church was full of people. The other students and I ended up standing in the back during Mass.
